Artist's Notes

Came up with this tune on one of my home made cigar box guitars.   This song also features one of my home made banjos

Sort of a World Beat meets Delta Blues theme using a drum loop.

Lyrics

What Are We Fighting For

 

By Brent Godfrey   ©   2017

 

 

Verse 1   All of this money we put into war

What are we really fighting for

Promoting freedom and democracy

Filling the pockets of the Oligarchy

 

 

ChorusWhat is your Truth

What is your Fear

What do you hold precious

What do you hold dear

Absolute Power

Thought Control

Freedom of Religion

Or don?t you really know

 

 

Verse 2Living with violence  Living with fear

Nobel values.   The truths we hold dear

Give me your tired.   Give me your poor

I lift my lamp beside the golden door

 

Chorus

 

Instrumental Chorus

 

Verse 3All of the lives that are shattered and torn

What are we really fighting for

Feeding the hungry and housing the poor

               The ones in power just want more more more

Chorus
